Total Landscape Care magazine named Lawrence Schubert, owner of L & L Landscaping, as the winner of the Total Landscape Care 2012 Landscaper’s Dream Package sweepstakes.
Schubert received a prize package of landscaping equipment and supplies worth more than $21,000 during Total Landscape Care’s Landscaper’s Dream Package Winner Event on Dec. 18 at 11 a.m. The event was hosted by Bull Dog Power Equipment of Monrovia, Indiana, the local Dixie Chopper dealer in Schubert’s area.
“I know there are a lot of worthy people out there, but for some reason, I was selected.”
The package included a Dixie Chopper riding mower ($7,350), a PBI Gordon certificate redeemable for turf and ornamental lawn care products ($3,500), an assortment of Husqvarna outdoor power equipment including a backpack blower, trimmer, edger, chainsaw, pole saw and other supplies, ($3,200), AlturnaMats ground protection mats ($3,000), a package of Corona professional landscaping tools ($2,000), PRO Landscape Design Software Version 18 from Drafix Software ($1,395) and a Magna-Matic lawn mower blade sharpening system ($1,100).
“I just feel very fortunate,” Schubert says. “I know there are a lot of worthy people out, there but for some reason, I was selected.”
Schubert started his business in 1977 in Mooresville, Indiana, and quickly formed a maintenance-heavy business focusing on mowing, trimming and mulching. Schubert says he hopes the Dream Package will help expand the business. Schubert entered to win the Dream Package on the Total Landscape Care website after reading about it in Total Landscape Care magazine.
Launched in 2006, the Total Landscape Care Landscaper’s Dream Package sweepstakes is the only program of its kind that enables sponsors to promote their products with a unique method that complements traditional advertising. Total Landscape Care promotes the program extensively with print, online, direct mail and email advertising. The entire package also is displayed annually at the GIE+EXPO trade show for professional landscapers. For the past six years, a lucky landscaper like Lawrence Schubert has won a package of top-of-the line landscaping equipment and supplies that help grow their business.
“We are very grateful to our Dream Package sponsors who make this exciting program possible,” says Jeff Cull of Total Landscape Care. “The promotional value is good for our advertisers, and the sweepstakes is fun for our subscribers.”
